FLY FISHING WINTER HAVEN, Florida offers many fine choices. Lake Elbert is one of several lovely suburban fisheries in the area. Homes and Polk State College surround the lake, but the fishing experience provides a sense of isolation. An hour bank fly fishing on Lake Elbert is well spent. While Florida is famous for our Big Swimming Lizards, wading is possible here and will open up more fishy spots to a cast.
BASS AND PANFISH WILL TAKE A FLY here. Use a nine foot, six weight fly rod, to aid casting. A floating line is necessary, but sinking flies will reach more fish. Try the slower sinking Rattle Eyes Half & Half. If you choose to wade and cast back into the vegetation, a weed guard will be necessary.
ONE GREAT ADVENTURE is right at our doorstep! Have fun fly fishing Lake Elbert.
